indeed. which is why the harsh strictures on XInclude are
misleading in 14.9?

personally, I think we should drop 14.9 entirely, and
remain agnostic on the subject. It gives an odd view
of XInclude, and talks about standoff in a way which
I claim is not consonant with the way the rest of the
Guidelines sells it (tho not under that name).
